News, Tips & Bargains : Driving the Niagara Freedom Trail

July 17, 1994

Before the Civil War, thousands of slaves made their way to a new life in Canada via the Underground Railroad. The Niagara Freedom Trail is a new six-hour, drive-it-yourself tour around southern Ontario with plaques at various stops marking where the freedom seekers were hidden, where they crossed over the border, where they lived, where they worshiped and where they're buried. For a free tour brochure: (905) 984-3626.

The Underground Railroad is also covered in the "African American Heritage" brochure from Lorain County, on Lake Erie west of Cleveland, Ohio: (800) 334-1673.
